    Hello Mumbai News: Hello Sangita Thankyou for joining the Interview with us today could you Introduce yourself for our readers.

    Sangita Chatlani : Hello, I’m Sangita Chatlani, originally from the United Kingdom and currently residing in India. I’m proud to be an entrepreneur and the director of an NGO here in India. My journey spans across borders, and I’m passionate about making a positive impact through both business and social initiatives.

    Hello Mumbai News : Could you share your memorable moments of 2023.

    Sangita Chatlani :

    In the span from 2022 to 2023, I have achieved significant milestones that reflect my dedication to social welfare in which I was honoured with a doctorate! Symbolising a commitment to bettering the lives of individuals through social work. Serving as a delegate, I proudly represented the United Kingdom at a prestigious G20 meeting, in the presence of our Prime minister Narendra Modi ji and Mr Jaishankar contributing to global discussions and fostering international collaboration!

    An opportunity to meet the Chief minister of Maharashtra Eknath Shinde and some of his team and working with them to form a board.

    Moreover, I have been actively involved in meaningful work with the transgender community in Maharashtra. By working closely with this community, I aim to contribute to positive societal change, promoting inclusivity and understanding. These achievements collectively underscore my dedication to making a positive impact on both local and global scales.

    I was also felicitated by Gajanan Kirtikar ji member of parliament and shiv Sena leader for my work in Social Welfare.

    Hello Mumbai News : What’s your future plans for 2024.

    Sangita Chatlani :
    In 2024, my focus will be on grassroots efforts in Imphal, working directly with women to enhance social awareness through education initiatives. Additionally, I aim to establish a Transgender Welfare Board for Maharashtra, emphasizing inclusive policies and support structures for the transgender community in the region. These plans reflect my commitment to fostering positive change at both the local and state levels.

    I also plan to concentrate on skill development initiatives and the formation of self-help groups for women in Imphal’s slum areas. By empowering them with valuable skills and fostering a sense of community through self-help groups, my aim is to provide these women with the tools to lead independent and supported lives, positively impacting both them and their families.

    I’m actively involved in projects with Inspiring Indian Women, an NGO based in the UK. Over the past two years, we have successfully implemented initiatives in India, operating on the ground level to directly impact communities. Our focus is on uplifting society through empowering Indian women. Looking ahead, we aspire to launch additional projects aimed at providing knowledge and creative education to people, particularly women in slum areas. By working at the grassroots level, we aim to facilitate positive transformations, enabling individuals to lead fulfilling lives for themselves and their families.

I aim to enhance and expand this initiative, ensuring its sustained success. By excelling in this venture, I hope to positively impact more lives and contribute to the economic empowerment of women in tribal areas.


    In the upcoming year, I plan to contribute to the improvement of international relations involving India. Leveraging my established international contacts, I aim to foster collaborations and facilitate connections that can enhance the global standing of India. Through strategic engagement and leveraging relationships, I hope to play a role in promoting the mutual benefit and cooperation between India and other nations.

Serving as the National President of Social Welfare of the Women’s Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, along with directing Inspiring Indian Women’s India chapter, allows me to further champion meaningful causes. These roles fuel my passion for creating positive change and inspire me to continue making a lasting impact.”

    Hello Mumbai News : What was your key driving force to become a social entrepreneur?

    Sangita Chatlani :

    My business idea sparked when local women knocked on my door seeking employment, coinciding with friends asking for house help. Connecting these dots, I started linking those in need with those seeking work. What began as a small initiative has grown into a fully-fledged business over seven years. I take immense pride in the journey, especially in how it has allowed me to train and provide jobs for tribal women. The satisfaction comes not just from running a successful business, but from knowing that I am making a positive impact on the lives of these women and contributing to better households management.

    In 2015, we initiated this NGO in the United Kingdom under the leadership of Rashmi Mishra. Over the years, it has flourished successfully, prompting us to extend our impact to India. Two years ago, in 2021, we officially registered the NGO in India under the name “Inspiring Indian Women.” The essence of our organisation is encapsulated in its name – our mission is to inspire and empower women within the Indian community. We strive to create a supportive environment where women uplift and empower one another, fostering confidence and mutual growth.

    Hello Mumbai News : What is your greatest fear, and how do you manage fear?

    Sangita Chatlani :
    I’ve been through so much in my life, a story for another day, but the pain and suffering have shaped me to a point where fear doesn’t exist anymore. It’s a strange realisation, but I think my lack of fear stems from the challenges I’ve faced. Now, I feel a responsibility to help others lead better lives, drawing from my own journey

    All the experiences, the ups and downs, have brought me to where I am today. It’s made me who I am. At this point, I believe the only entity we should be mindful of is God. It’s about gratitude and acknowledging that my experiences, however tough, have been instrumental in my growth.
